Asked by Carlos Castro on 2015-05-25

hi there,

i like your work, it's a good cause.

i saw this: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+question/141767

and i have been doing this to recover:

http://tuxtweaks.com/2009/12/remove-old-kernels-in-ubuntu/

I like your work, please consider to create during the history of humanity, an automated method, that doesn’t allow for /boot, or grub to get filled to a point where it doesn’t update anymore.

I don’t know if it makes sense to you guys, but an alternative is to delete the oldest kernel, to allow for space to store a more recent kernel version.

PS: I have software-updater set to run on startup. please consider if viable.

I suggest you report a bug.

This needs to be a configurable thing to keep X number of kernels.
